    To stand in the primaries for either the republican or democratic party, you have to be approved by that party. You cant just stand for a party at whatever platform you choose. Only independents can do what you are talking about, and they are never elected president.

    Also, I'm still looking for a full quote about this. So far I have been able to come up with nothing, aside from the fact that this AP article was written by Sarah El Deeb, which isn't really promising.
    They nominate themselves, but they have to belong to a party to be elected. And if they want to stand in the primaries for either the republican or democrat party which is their only choice of being elected, then they have to be approved by that party.

    I am no expert on the US election process, but I am pretty damn sure my description in the last dusin posts are the correct reality.

    Yes, and in Europe the parties approve their prime minister candidates without any interference by the people. The total vote of such nominations are taken by perhaps 0.01% of the total population(the party leadership and committees).

    Yes there is.. The parties they approve candidates, and we all know without being member of the right party you can never become president or prime minister.
    There is a small difference between bourgeois democracy and bourgeois dictatorship, which is what Iran is. The Supreme Council holds all the power in the country. The Supreme Council is not voted upon by the people. The representatives voted upon by the people are subordinate to the Supreme Council. Your partisanship is making you distort the truth.

    None. All US citizens of that party are free to run in the primary provided they have enough signatures and are a registered voter for that party.

    This is why I asked the question. How are presidential candidates chosen? How is the list whittled down to the amount that participate in the primaries?

    No, I am not in favor of Iran.. I am just trying to show ho biased you are against Iran and how biased you are in favor of your own version of democracy. Not you specifically, but the people in this thread who claim the Iranian president, who said those nasty things, are not democratically elected.

    Technically it amounts to the amount of signatures that a person can get to get on the ballot for state primaries. Since one has to be fairly well known and successful as a politician to get enough signatures in every state its hard for unknowns to get in.

    KC might be communist, but at least he's an honest debater. You are not.
